It has been three years since Saudi Arabia started bombing Yemen. The degree of destruction and starvation that has resulted is beyond comprehension. Over400,000 Yemeni children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition, and a child dies every 10 minutes from the combined effects of war, hunger, and the lack of medical facilities.
In February, the UN launched a humanitarian appeal calling for $2.1 billion for Yemen. But so far only 7% of the appeal has been funded.

It was bad enough that President Obama was supporting the Saudis in their military intervention in Yemen. But now President Trump is increasing that support—selling more weapons and providing greater logistical support. Further escalation of the war in Yemen will mean even more death and hunger for the Yemeni people. Concerned with this, Representatives Pocan (D-WI), Amash (R-MI), Lieu (D-CA), and Jones (R-NC) introduced a bipartisan letter trying to stop Trump from escalating U.S. involvement without authorization from Congress.
Towards a world where children don’t go hungry because of man-made famines!
